Abolore Adegbola Akande, also known as 9ice, a Nigerian singer, has said that he will support Ahmed Bola Tinubu in the February 25 general election as the party’s presidential candidate.
In a recent interview that is currently viral online, 9ice said that Tinubu captured his heart when he requested for his phone number during a performance.
According to the him, “while performing at a show, the former governor asked one of his boys to get my number”, and this alone meant a lot to him.
He added that “it’s not easy for a person of such repute in a crowded area to pick interest in an artiste, let alone collecting his phone number.”
As they considered how justified this is, social media users were shocked by the singer’s explanation.
Evidently, 9ice has joined the group of famous people who have officially endorsed Tinubu.
